Experienced minster Daniels offers proven advice and godly wisdom for developing a success plan in your first few months of change. You'll discover ways to relieve ministry pressure, build church and community relationships, respond when problems arise, confront unresolved conflicts, and more. 224 pages, hardcover from Beacon Hill.
Every time a pastor goes to a new church, they form hopes, dreams, and expectations - without necessarily realizing it - for the progress and growth of their new ministry. Not only do these pastors have to transition into a new congregation and community, but they also have to think about building strong relationships with other influential people in the area. Almost every day, pastors of new churches face unexpected hardships and challenges. Some of the issues are financial mismanagement from their predecessor, moral or ethical misbehavior, or unresolved conflict that has just been suppressed long enough to find a new pastor. The fact is, pastors of new churches need guidance. The First 100 Days is for these pastors who need some guidance and insight to help them lead with godly wisdom and purpose during the first few months.
